Maitland Woods Boardwalk
ever so quietly,
I have adored:
and every sort of bee.
But when I've asked them to stay,
they've only hurried away.
These Bridges & Fences are my exploration into the interplay of the objects we've built with the natural world that holds them.
Here, Nature is depicted by loosely-applied, textural, riotous colour. The colour is the first thing: it arrests the attention and makes us want to linger. But the texture is the other thing: it requires that a lot of work be put into painting anything of value atop it. I really had to watch my step.
